Plan your employees’ vacations and vacations by allowing them to create an appointment on a “Vacation” or “Leave” project. This way, they can plan their absences and you can be notified immediately and approve or not their request.

Create a project for vacations and vacations

First, create a vacation project, such as “Vacation 2022-2022” or a leave project, such as “Health Leave 2022.”

For even more efficient management, add your employees’ accumulated vacation hours in the “Assignment” tab of the project. These hours can be found in the time bank report which you can view here.

Add an appointment

Then add an appointment and assign it to the vacation or vacation project. This way, the supervisor will receive a notification and can approve the request. If necessary, move the vacation appointments by dragging them to another date.

Note: This box cannot be checked by anyone other than the employee’s immediate supervisor.
You cannot put more than one person at a time on this type of appointment.

As a supervisor, you receive a warning email that Mr. Employee has created a vacation agenda.

Click on the link sent in the email to approve the appointment.

After approving a request, the employee is automatically notified by email as well.

Viewing vacation and leave approvals

First, look in the “appointment” form and observe the green check mark including the date and name of the supervisor who approved the vacation.

Then, a green umbrella visual icon appears in the employee’s calendar. A black umbrella indicates that the application is still pending approval.

Have a great vacation!

Locking timesheets

By Employees, Human resources functions, Projects, Timesheet

Project managers can closely monitor the hours worked by their employees thanks to the locking of timesheets. When they find that their employees have spent enough time on a project and want to invoice a client for it, for example, they just have to lock their timesheet so they don’t have to. plus the ability to make changes within the times entered. If they want to process payroll, they can lock entire days so they cannot be changed.

Types of locking

Here are the types of locks you can perform:


This option allows you to block the modification of time entries. If you lock a timesheet this way, the employee will no longer be able to modify what they have already entered in their timesheet for the specified period. However, he can add new hours for the coming days.

Full days

With this option, you can prevent data from being entered over a specific period of time. For example, if you lock the days from April 4 to 7 for one of your employees, he will no longer be able to enter anything in his timesheet for these days.

How to use the timesheet lock

To use this function, click on the “Timesheet icon.

Select “Lock” from the left vertical menu.

Check the name of the employee or employees whose timesheets you want to lock. Choose the period covered, then the type of lock. Click on Lock .
